Hi, I am curious as to the standard routes of travel between Scotland and Plymouth in the 1870s.
One of my ancestors immigrated to Australia from Lankarshire Scotland, along with 12 family members. He departed from Plymouth.
I am very interested in exactly how they would have traveled from Scotland to Plymouth:- by boat, by horses, by train? And how long this type of travel would have typically taken. Was it done in stages or one long journey?
